(*Whirrrrrrrrrrrrrr*) - Darter

Tactical Analysis

  • Intelligence Gatherers: Darters are exceptionally good early game scouts. Cheap, reliable and capable of moving uninhibited across the skies, they offer unrivaled scouting capabilities with their exceptionally large sight radius. In addition, their radiological scanners allow them to detect stealth in an area around themselves.
  • Blending In: When scouting areas of high threat level, the Darter can switch off its active radar system and rely solely on its passive radiological scanners. Its small size and profile makes it near impossible to find high in the sky, thus granting it stealth.
  • Clipped Wings: Darters are naturally unarmored, and are easily downed by any form of ground to air fire. (However, missiles are known to take forever to lock on to a Darter) With no weapons systems, the Darter is incapable of defending itself, and its only response to enemy fire is to escape the area as fast as possible.
